What Does an Ejector Pump Do?
Ejector pumps are typically installed with a sump basin located in the basement floor. This basin collects waste water from plumbing fixtures that fall below the sewer or septic line, where it is stored until it reaches a certain level within the basin. Once the wastewater level reaches the maximum level, the sewer ejector pump activates to pump the wastewater up and out of the basement to ground level until it reaches the sewer or septic line. This process repeats itself frequently as wastewater levels rise and fall.

Sewage ejector pumps have many working parts including, but not limited to:
